Human Resources Management (HRM) is a discipline of management replete with gray areas, vague laws requiring intense deliberations, and soft nuances only the most experienced HR professionals can detect. With such diverse topics as how to discipline an employee to career development and from sexual harassment investigations to collective bargaining with unions, HRM necessitates practice to gain a full understanding of its major aspects. To this end, Cases in Human Resources Management provides students with "real world" practice to prepare them for future challenges. Made up entirely of cases, scenarios, role-plays, self-assessments, and research opportunities, this book will complement any HRM textbook. Some items are crafted in such a way as to be ideally suited for use in-class, while others are perfect for "take home" assignments. The goal is to give readers situations they may actually face and apply what they have learned from the courses and texts.
